The last of this Fisheye Weekend
Posted By: daacon, 01-27-2008, 06:39 AM

Well here are the last of the Fisheye shots from the weekend. Weather is suppose take a turn for the worst this week , so outside shoots may be far and few between.

The Armoury - date up top says 1911 - grafitti on the door a little newer I think -I cloned out a loading zone sign and the head of small boy on the bottom left- tough to get isolation with 180 degree view !

A mural on a building that really stands out, I think. It is huge and very colorful. It depicts a simplier time in the area

I should have metioned in the other posts almost all are at the wide end 10mm where the fisheye effect is much more noticible. At 17mm much less so. I hope next to get some inside shots downtown perhaps. Hope you enjoy.

Ha ha, you've nailed it, SpecialK! We've probably all got photos of our own anatomy with the fisheye (Note to self: Do not use DA 10-17 while naked )

I love that mural shot, Dave, the fisheye works so well on that. Nice to see the vandals haven't tagged it, unlike the door on that beautiful hundred-year-old armoury building. Anti-social morons.

Cool shots again with the new toy Dave. Looks like you might be in line for some software that de-fishes the shot a bit. I know paint.net (freeware) does but it seems a bit rough. I wonder if anyone has any recommendations.

Thanks Peter - I may look into that - although depending on the photo and lines at 17mm the fisheye effect is much less pronouced and I do have the 12-24 (although I think the 10-17 at 17mm has a wider view than the 12-24 at 12mm)

You did well paying attention to all the corners. If legs are included within the frame, just crop it out. Hehe

Thanks James I actually paid attention to that through the viewfinder (the K20D feature of preview and keep would come in handy with the Fisheye!). I missed the bottom right a bit but close

You may have already seen this side-by-side comparison of the fisheye vs the 12-24 over the common lengths, but maybe not...

Thanks SpecialK I stand corrected at same focal length the DA10-17 is wider than the DA 12-24. And Yeah I remember looking at those pictures in one of your other posts as well. A great comparision thanks!

Oh, come on Dave, for the sake of the art! What's a bit of frostbite!
Very interesting photos. Really like how you captured that mural.
